Early Summer Exhibition
Call of the Wild
Featuring the work of Nicolas Bruant and Helen Moore
Open Thu—Sat 11am—4pm (and by appointment)
There is a magic, a poignancy, a sense of excitement about the African bush that is not only gripping, it is addictive. Once bitten by the ‘bush bug’ a person is infected for life. Bush fever is a kind of madness that compels you to return and return – a longing which will seize you by the throat until you would gladly sell your soul for the sight of a dry thorn tree against an empty sky, a herd of wildebeest wheeling under their cloud of dust, or the deep rasping “augh!” of a lion prowling in the night.

The Bigger Picture Gallery’s Early Summer Exhibition contrasts the dark, brooding, black and white images of East Africa’s wild beasts, captured over a period of nearly 50 years by veteran French photographer Nicolas Bruant, with the lighter, more contemporary style of local Cornwall-based photographer, Helen Moore.
In addition to limited edition prints, Wild Beasts, a book encapsulating Bruant’s finest animal portraits is available for sale at £20, exclusively at the gallery, together with a series of poster prints and postcards.
